Designed by Jeff Loomis, this extended scale 7-string Schecter electric guitar features an arched ash body with a set-in 26.5" scale maple neck. The longer scale generates the depth of tone required for body-slamming modern crunch. Schecter's UltraAccess joint yields unobstructed access to the 24th fret! The maple fingerboard has black metal cross inlays to complement the guitar's Vampyre Red Satin finish.
Armed with dual EMG Active 707 humbucker pickups, which yield the attack, clarity, and sustain to propel lethal riffs. A Floyd Rose Original locking 7-string tremolo lets you execute the most subtle tremolo or wildest dive-bombing effects and return to perfect tuning every time.

best guitar i have ever owned. having one problem with it though. after a couple of months it started to sound like it was in distortion while on a clean channel. if anyone knows anything about this problem or is having the same problem or knows a way to fix it please contact me at email@example.com, and yes i did try changing the battery.
This guitars is awsome. I special ordered one with Guitar Center in the satin black finish with the floyd rose tremolo. First off the wood chosen by Jeff Loomis was a intelligent choice. The Ash body with the maple neck maple fingerboard provides a great solid bright tone which compliments the 7th string really well giving lots of clarity and a strong almost purcussive sound. The majority of 7 strings out there sound really dark even with Emg's and Maple tops. Its a little heavey because alder and maple are dense heavy tonewoods. The guitar stays in tune even with hard diveboombing. The neck is wide/thin. Not toothpik thin like Ibanez. Beefy thin were its really comfortable and fast but it feels strong. The satin finish on the neck feels really nice and smooth. There is good clearence for the 24th fret but not 100% perfect. The tremolo is a little stiffer then a 6 string due to the extra 7th string. The volume knob and toggle switch feel akward were they are positioned but you will never accidently lower the volume or hit the toggle selecter by mistake. Its a really beautifull guitar. Even though I play mostly Metal and usually use EMG 81, 85 Im not that into the EMG 707's. Ill probably try out the Seymour Duncan Black Outs. I play mostly metal. I played ESP's, Ltd EC-1000, schecter c-1 plus, blackjacks, Gibson standards and Ibanez. For metal this guitar is the best. For good ol rock n roll, R and B, alternative I would stick to the mohogany back maple top with seymour duncan distortion/JB bridge Jazz neck combo.
This guitar is amazing. If you are considering getting a 7 string guitar within its price range, buy it. This guitar feels well made and durable, and looks killer. It plays just as beautifully as it looks, and the floyd rose tremolo system is certainly fun to mess around with (This is my first Floyd Rose). All in all, buy this guitar, you wont regret it.
This guitar is absolutely great. Pickups: Amazingly solid sound. Not a single note sounds weak or unfocused. Very powerful. Great for heavy rhythms, lead, or cleans. Neck: Perfect shape. It is very slick with it's finish. It's not too wide either. Tone and power is evenly distributed across the entire fretboard. Very solid. Tuners: Stays perfectly in tune ALL THE TIME. Tremolo: The best tremolo that you will find on any guitar. Body: The ash body has great resonance and tone. Overall: Schecter makes the best guitars in the world, and this is Schecter's best guitar. There's no need to spend more money on a guitar than this. Absolutely top of the line.
I had played a couple hellraisers at the local store and wasn't quote sold. GC ordered this for me and it arrived in a few days. Normall I'm not comfortable ordering something like a guitar but they promised if I didn't like it I could return it. Boy... Love at first grasp. Great action. Gigantic frets. Amazing sustain even when bending waaaaay up on the high E string. Plays like a dream, Floyd Rose bridge keeps it in tune. I don't want another guitar :).
This guitar is absolutely awesome! The EMG 707's make for some brutal tones. Maple Neck and Ash Body is a wonderful combination, both to look at and to play. Tons of sustain on this baby. I have also recorded beautiful jazz and blues on this guitar. Very versatile. The original Floyd is awesome. I haven't had to tune this guitar in about a month and a half. My only complaint is that the tone is so good out of this thing that I don't play my other guitars very much! Big time steal for the price! \../ (-_-) \../
I've owned 8 guitars and played a few dozen in stores and this is by far the best I've ever played or owned. The combination of the set maple neck and the ash body create such a bright tone. Yes, the neck is slightly thicker than an ibanez wizard neck but for me it feels great. Also, the satin painted neck is great for moving up and down the neck quickly. Simply put, if you play metal and want a 7 string there's a very good chance this is the guitar for you.
There is no other guitar in this price range that even comes close to this thing. Amazing pickups, OFR, set neck, maple fretboard, infinite sustain, 7 strings! Super solid, super low tunings, divebombs, you can do anything on this guitar.
This guitar is amazing! it has a smooth and fast neck. i have small hands and i had no difficulty wrapping my hand around the neck. the trem is awesome. and the active emg's make this guitar an awesome guitar for metal and hard rock. i like the contrast between the maple fretboard on the red body. right now this guitar is a little out of my price range because i recently put myself on a budget, but it is an awesome price for the great quality of this guitar
